Headrest removal on a 08

I can't get the headrests out of the seats of my 08. I push the button and it still won't release. I detail cars and I've never run into this before. I've never had a problem removing headrests in almost every other vehicle out there. Anyone able to shed some light on this weird problem?

You have to put something real thin into the hole at the base of the headrest, push in and *then* press the button while pulling up.

Yeah, not sure why they need that hole when they also have the buttons on them (kind of redundant, IMO).
